DIRECTION
[ Also see Purpose ]

I can't change the direction of the wind, but I can adjust my sails to always reach my destination.
      - Jimmy Dean

A straight path never leads anywhere except to the objective.
      - Andre Gide

Thought is the wind, knowledge the sail, and mankind the vessel.
      - Augustus William Hare

I find the great thing in this world is not so much where we stand, as in what direction we are moving: To reach the port of heaven, we must sail sometimes with the wind and sometimes against it, but we must sail, and not drift, nor lie at anchor.
      - Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr.

A man should learn to sail in all winds.
      - Proverb, (Italian)

To reach a port, we must sail--sail, not tie at anchor--sail, not drift.
      - Franklin Delano Roosevelt

If one does not know to which port one is sailing, no wind is favorable.
      - Seneca (Lucius Annaeus Seneca)

One ship sails east, another west,
  By the self-same winds that blow.
    It isn't the gales, it's the set of the sails,
      That determines the way we go.
      - Ella Wheeler Wilcox
